Gray, warmish, thaw. I don’t believe the temperature has exceeded freezing since Thanksgiving.
Went with dog to Beech Hill in mid-morning. Drippy, breezy, raw. Saw two bird species—chickadee and gull. Also saw three people and a dog, which I have to say kind of surprised me.
Afterward, running errands, I ran into a bunch of goldfinch dining on tree seeds. A lot of ducks in the Megunticook River.
